The U.S. Coast Guard plans to honor a Honolulu-based cutter’s 45 years of service during a decommissioning ceremony.

The Honolulu-based Cutter Rush is being replaced by the Cutter Sherman.

The Rush was launched in 1968. It started its service during the Vietnam War. It’s been used in counter-narcotics patrols off Central and South America and in fisheries enforcement patrols in the Pacific.

Coats Guardsmen have taken the Rush on search and rescue missions around the world.

The Coast Guard plans to hold a decommissioning ceremony for the Rush at Coast Guard Base Honolulu on Tuesday.
